Don Quixote

The Oxford Covered Market, The Covered Market
Oxford, Oxfordshire OX1 3DY United Kingdom
£23 – £25

Adapted and directed by Jonathan Holloway, Creation Theatre’s Don Quixote will remain faithful to Cervantes’ beautiful paean to growing old while simultaneously re-fashioning it as a fable for our times, in Oxford's Covered Market. A Honda 50cc moped represents a noble steed, a folding Formica topped camping table accommodates a great feast, the woman in accounts handing out the P45s stands-in as Dom’s unattainable beauty, Dulcinea del Toboso. Sometimes almost unbearably moving, our evening of ghosts and dreams celebrates the…

North Wall Arts Centre, South Parade

Now diet culture rules, faddism and myths abound, and body-shaming is the last socially acceptable prejudice. As a natural loaf…
